I AM

Quoted in Holy Sweat, Tim Hansel, 1987, Word Books Publisher, p. 136

I was regretting the pastAnd fearing the future…Suddenly my Lord was speaking:"MY NAME IS I AM." He paused.

I waited. He continued,"When you live in the past,with its mistakes and regrets, it is hard. I am not there.

My name is not I was."When you live in the future,with its problems and fears,it is hard. I am not there.

My name is not I will be."When you live in this moment,it is not hard.I am here.

My name is I AM."
